Friends of the Bartlett Library



About the Friends of the Library

Friends of the Bartlett Library LogoThe Friends support the Library in their mission to provide quality services and programs to the community. Since their inception in 1983, they have donated over $130,000 to the Library. In addition, every child that receives a new Library card also receives a new book donated by the Friends. 


The Friends participate in many activities during the year, including: Perpetual Book Sale (located in lobby); Fravinia outdoor concerts and their Library volunteer program.


The dues, along with all the money raised throughout the year, go directly to benefit the Library. The Friends have contributed funds for programs, Hot Reads, computers, furniture & equipment, online homework help and much more. The Library would not be able to offer the richness of programs and materials to the community without their support. 



Become a Friend

Any person interested in supporting the Library is encouraged to join the Friends. Organizations, clubs, and businesses are also welcome.  Annual dues are yearly from your date of membership enrollment and start at only $10.00 for an individual. Additional contributions of any size are happily accepted. Volunteering and attendance at meetings is optional.


Please fill out the Friends Application and return it to the Library, along with your payment, to become a Friend's member.
